Cairo Genizah : Letter

Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter to the tax farmer Abū l-Bišr Mevasser ha-Kohen b. Sulaymān (in a very crude hand there is a jotting ‘this letter should reach Abū l-Bišr Mevoraḵ b. Sason’). According to Goitein’s card catalogue, the letter is from Zakkay b. Moses, although it looks a lot more like the hand of Zakkay b. Solomon. The writer is copying a Bible translation in Maḥalla. Mentions people including Abū l-Murajjā Sol(omon), the Ḥaver Ibn Ṭarīf, Solomon, and Abū l-ʿAlā. </p>
